Being conscious about the fact that achieving higher level of development requires women’s increased participation in the economy, a bigger share to them from development and growth and improvement of their position in the family, Elif continues to launch important social responsibility projects as well. In this frame, Elif has offered job opportunities to housewives in tying operations of hundreds of thousands of bags produced by the company in 2016, which in turn has created total women employment of 235 working days. Elif raised this number to 1,370 working days and provided employment for women in 2017.

Acting with the objective of doing the best for the “human”, its reason for being, and pursuing the ‘Packaging for Life’ passion in its all decisions and steps, Elif believes in line with this mission that women must be at least as strong as men both economically and socially, have an active role in the business life and take part in all dimensions of life.
